aBandofBrothers are part of the novo consortium that will be combining with MTC to run the CRCs in London and the Thames Valley. As part of the supply chain, we will be expanding our rites of passage based personal transformation and mentoring programme in the region over the course of the next 18 months.
We are conscious of how we might be seen by others in the sector. One group may see us as having “sold out” to the corporates. Another may have concerns about us assuming that we know their area and their client group and judge us as arrogant for thinking we should grow.
We want to assure everyone that this is not the case. We know we have much to learn about the unique characteristics of new areas and about the challenges of working with different cultures and sub cultures. However we do believe that we have something of value to offer – both to other organisations and to individual young men, struggling to put their life on track after a period in custody.
So we’d like to start by offering people from the wider sector an opportunity to experience our methodology and start to build a relationship with you and also build a network of like-minded souls.
We are running a weekend residential workshop from 20th to 22nd of February for those interested. We are at this point, primarily looking for senior leaders from the sector who would be in a position to commit their organisation to a partnership. We’re also looking for connected and capable social or Civic entrepreneurs interested in our approach.
This residential is a male only programme. This is not because we don’t value and honour women but because we believe that there is a need for men to get together in a single gender environment to work on themselves and collectively resolve issues of masculinity and maleness in order to better serve our communities. We would love to hear from women working within the sector, so please do still contact us.
